Default Best PDF viewer + 'Print to PDF' option ? - 08-09-2009, 05:47 AM

Is there one single option for light weight PDF Viewer + 'Print to PDF' ? currently I use Foxit + CutePDF on my other non-Mini (non netbook) PCs. Just like you all Mini owners, I am looking for most efficient solution.

Thanks

`P.S. : I stopped using Adobe Acrobat ages ago as I find it to be a system hog, so can never consider that

I use Cute PDF quite a bit.

You can't beat the price. (Free)

I would just use Acrobat reader to read with.

Besides being a resource hog, Acrobat Reader has many security issues:

With all due respect to Adobe - Acrobat sucks resources like anything.. I will stick with Foxit + Cute PDF for now. I was wondering if I can get just one s/w to both view and 'print to' pdfs

Yes, there is a single program to create and view PDFs.

It's called Foxit PDF Creator add-on.

FYI, that feature is built into OS X. you're probably running a different OS though...but just in case you want to experiment in the future with a hackintosh.
